Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Fans Should Expect Shortage As Company Shut Down Factory

Just a few weeks after launching the clamshell Samsung Galaxy Z Flip smartphone, the company has announced that it will shut down one of its factories in South Korea due to the COVID-19 epidemic.


Samsung had blown the mobile device industry away after it finally unveiled its foldable phone. The foldable phone, named Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, had entered the market on Valentine’s day, 14th February 2020. It did not take long before stores were out of stock as consumers bought out all the units supplied in countries like the US and Singapore.


While the early rush had seen a massive sale, people are still obviously buying the phone. This, despite reviews from popular social media tech experts revealed that the screen covering it was not actually a foldable glass.


Now, the company is letting customers know that they are to expect another shortage. This time, it is because Samsung has to shut down one of its factories in the city of Gumi, South Korea.

Further reports revealed that one of the employees of the wireless division that’s in charge of phone production tested positive for the illness. While it announced closing the factory on Saturday 22nd February 2020, it revealed that it will likely reopen on Monday 24th February 2020.


In a statement concerning the incidence, a Samsung spokesperson said:


“The health and safety of our employees are our highest priority. The company plans to implement all necessary measures for disinfection and containment promptly.”


The severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that causes the COVID-19 has proven stubborn to treatments. It has stalled many activities in China and other parts of the world.


Tech companies have also borne their share of the effects. It has led to the cancellations of many tech conferences and events that had been scheduled for 2020.
